Evolution Of My Kitchen

I've been pulling together some more of the finished decorative aspects of my kitchen space... I guess in a designer's home nothing's ever finished. I thought I'd post some pictures and realized it may be more meaningful if I share the journey. The space used to be the home's dining room.
A few shots of me assembling my IKEA cabinets.

Above the space is primed and cabinet frames hung and below the floor going in. PS- don't forget this is all going on with 5 boys and 2 dogs. When I look back at this image I truly ache for the time when my smallest was that small. 

I was so excited when the backsplash went in. Next... pictures of the finished space. xoxo

    Lady you need to share your secret with me...my project has me stressed out and rocking "bag lady chic" and I have people doing the physical stuff!! Mind you they are men, and after looking at how my pebble tiles went on today I reckon I could cut down on the level of stress if I had done it myself!!
